Devil in Texas (Lady Law & The Gunslinger Series, Book 1)
Sadie Michelson is a Lady Pinkerton agent working to learn Baron Westerfield's secrets and bring him down. The plan is to use her skills at singing and seduction to get her man. But things go horribly awry when she spots William "Cass" Cassidy in the crowd right before she goes on stage. They have a history as lovers, and he can easily blow her cover. Instead, her dressing room is set aflame, and in the chaos of escaping the fire, Cass believes that Sadie is dead.
The job must go on. Sadie continues her pursuit of Baron in a variety of disguises. Cass works for Baron now, and though he has a dream of being a Texas Ranger, he fears that dream is impossible due to events in his past. Now, his life can be a comedy, what with his sidekick Collie and Collie's pet raccoon. When he discovers Sadie is still alive, he can't understand what she's doing. What’s with all her disguises? Meanwhile, Sadie is sad that she and Cass seem to be working on opposite sides.
In this first title in her "Lady Law & the Gunslinger" series, Adrienne deWolfe serves up a dose of pure fun. Her feisty heroine, charming hero, and assortment of secondary players are loaded with character. Some of these characters were in a prior series, but for the most part, readers will be able to keep up. The tale is liberally infused with a Wild West flavor that really spices up the tale. Fans of suspenseful Westerns should get this one on their e readers!
